Astryda Borowska - Order of the Silver Crecent

Took on this assignment and was at a loss for what to do for illumination. I”d did some searching through the EK Wiki and browsed through her husband”s blog but had a really hard time coming up with ideas. So I set upon creating the words to see if that would give me some inspiration, […]

Tyger Scribes in Trying Times

At the beginning of the 2020 lockdowns in the Eastkingdom, our Signet and a few others came up with an idea for an auction to help fund the making of masks. The Scribes of the east, Tyger Scribes as we would be dubbed, were light on projects and were in need of a pick-me-up and […]

Wine ink (part 1)

Back in September of 2019, while packing to move, I”d stumbled across two partial bottles of red wine. A sniff test told me that they were pretty much undrinkable. I”d be a shame to throw them out, besides, red wines have tannins, right? Also, I thought I”d read that wine was sometimes used as ink. […]

Left-handed Project (part 1)

,

So this post had me thinking a lot about my friends who are left-handed. Several of which have lamented not being able to do calligraphy. Tonight was the first night I sat down and did a full quote in Foundational script with my left hand. In hindsight, it would have been easier to start with […]

Roy de Basillion - OSR

Do you know what makes me feel awesome? Having someone reach out to me and ask me to work on a scroll for or with them. This was one of those assignments. Basically, everything was put into motion and the Signet notified right before the assignment hit the queue. Anne and I started collaboration immediately […]

Kenneric Aubrey - OSB

And this is how you end up with multiple assignments, knowing people. A Facebook group chat was formed and I found myself in the middle of happy exclamations that this was, in fact, going to be a thing! I”d written Kenneric in for a Silver Brooch, but it didn”t get much traction. This time, however, […]

Alastar Tucker - OSB

I”ll admit, I was a little giddy when the Signet reached out to me about this assignment. I already had two others on my plate for the end of the month, but they were calligraphy only. I”m quite happy that through some careful planning I was able to wiggle this into the space between the […]

Fujimoto Dorthy- OTE

And there I was, sitting in the Sanctuary, practicing some calligraphy when I hear “Faolán! Drop what you”re doing and grab your kit!” another Event Expedient Scroll was about to become a thing. Our Queen had struck again, this time with three new companions to the Order of the Tyger”s Eye, given to the teens […]

Lady Hilde Perdue - OSB

This was a fun one. Originally we had not planned to go to the Barony Beyond the Mountain / Bergental Yule. A friend was getting elevated to the Order of the Pelican, but we didn”t think we could swing the logistics of it. Our friend, Jen, offered up her family to dog-sit Ivy, in exchange […]

Muirenn Ingen Broein Meic Riain - AoA

This scroll was a trial. It just didn”t” want to be. The first attempt was going really well. The paper and ink were getting along pretty well. It was a recycled paper that I”d inherited and I used Noodler”s Bulletproof Black, which is a pretty well-behaved ink. There were some spots that had not been […]
